Editorial comments: Freedom of Speech

The following comments were generated from an editorial by FOX6 WBRC-TV General Manager Lou Kirchen, which first aired on Thursday, March 10, 2011.

Selena from Birmingham

My opinion is that they can not be there because the family is suffering through a whole lot. There's a time and place for everything and right now is not that time to have those protestors out there.

Lamar from Roebuck

I believe in the freedom of speech as much as anybody else. But to stand at a gravesite of a loved one and people respecting the lives of their loved ones....and people doing this that want to do I think is absurd.

Wilma from Moody

I think it's a terrible thing for them to protest at someone's funeral that's gone to fight for their country....So, I resent the fact, I believe in freedom of speech but I do not believe that they should be allowed to demonstrate and carry all those hate signs that close to a funeral.
